Not only does the tire pattern lead to excellent handling and very good braking properties on dry road surfaces, but it also ensures short braking distances on wet road surfaces.
Reduced noise emissions guarantee a high level of driving comfort. Additionally, the tire's contour distributes the pressure between the tire and road surface evenly, leading to high mileage.
The tire's pattern creates outstanding traction in light off-road use.
ContiSeal is a technology developed by Continental designed to seal a damaged tire tread. In case of penetration by foreign objects such as nails, there is no need for immediate roadside tire changes, and holes remain sealed even if the puncturing object becomes dislodged. ContiSeal is a sticky, viscous sealant layer. It is applied to the inside of the tire in the tread area. ContiSeal seals 80% of all tire punctures and therefore reduces the risk of flat tires. ContiSeal tires are marked clearly with a symbol on the sidewall and are compatible with all commonly available rims.
ContiSilent is a tire noise-reducing technology developed by Continental. It is designed to reduce interior noise on all road surfaces. ContiSilent tires are equipped with an inner tire absorber, a polyurethane foam, attached to the inner surface of the tread area with an adhesive. Regardless of the temperature, the structure of the foam stays intact. ContiSilent helps reduce interior vehicle noise up to 9 dB(A), depending on the type of vehicle, its speed and the road surface.
The SSR system is a runflat technology developed by Continental especially for low section tires, which still keeps the tires compatible with all standard rims. The SSR principle is based on a self-supporting reinforced sidewall. In case of a puncture, this prevents the sidewall from being crushed between the rim and the road, and the tire from slipping off the rim, which makes a spare tire obsolete. Not having to carry a spare tire means a reduction in weight, which improves fuel efficiency. It also adds up to 80 litres of free space in the trunk. Fitting on four positions is highly recommended, if not yet mandatory by law and a tire repair is not allowed.
